Former Employee - Master Plasma Center Technician in Bellingham, WA

I worked at Biolife Plasma Services full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great people to work with,great benifets.They are relatively flexible about letting you take vacation when you want to.

Cons

Not much oppourtunity for advanceing unless you want to move. Lots of micromanagmant, cannot get a set schedule.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The center i worked at had a lot of people wanting to move forward who were not able to due to unfair circumstances. Typically the people who are promoted to supervisor or above all are older and have families or are starting a family.

    Former Employee - Senior Plasma Center Technician in Janesville, WI
    Former Employee - Senior Plasma Center Technician in Janesville, WI

    I worked at Biolife Plasma Services part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable scheduling - easy to work with family and/or school, unpaid days off as requested within reason, name recognition - resume builder, good learning experience for entry level, room for advancement to a certain extent

    Cons

    Stressful - always about the numbers, no allowance for variables which is important when working with humans, if a person is coming from a medical background it will be quite a change from what you are used to - gloves are worn for an hour or more and not changed between donors when working on the floor preforming phlebotomy, supervisors are usually (in my 3+ year experience) not from a healthcare field which can cause issues when they are directing healthcare situations, the structure of the centers is a natural for creating division among job titles and can cause things to become very tense, turnover like I've never seen in 25 years of working

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, don't hire from outside and have your lower level employees train the person who they will be reporting to, although there are some strict SOPs it does not preclude center policies being made that adhere to the SOP.
